Heidi Klum has learnt to ‘em­brace’ her body

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 43-year-old model - who has four chil­dren, Leni, 12, Henry, 11, Jo­han, nine, and Lou, seven, with for­mer hus­band and mu­si­cian Seal - has seen her fig­ure fluc­tu­ate over the years be­cause of her preg­nan­cies but she isn’t wor­ried about the toll they took on her fig­ure as she has just learnt to “roll with it”. She said: “I’m now 43 ... My stom­ach has stretched in and out and in and out and in and out four times. I’ve breast­fed four chil­dren ... You just have to em­brace it, go with it, just roll with it. “I love my shape be­cause it’s mine. At the end of the day, it’s not what any­one else thinks about my body but how I feel about my­self. I’m work­ing it and own­ing it!” The ‘Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent’ judge man­ages to stay in shape with­out a strict ex­er­cise regime, as she says be­ing a mother “is a work­out in it­self”. In­stead, the star likes to get her fam­ily en­gaged in “out­door ac­tiv­i­ties” to stay healthy with­out feel­ing forced to ex­er­cise. She added: “I try to be ac­tive as much as pos­si­ble. I don’t have time for work­outs every day. Be­ing the mother of four kids is a work­out in it­self! Balanc­ing my work and their sched­ules makes it hard to find time for a tra­di­tional ex­er­cise rou­tine, so we try to do as many out­door ac­tiv­i­ties as a fam­ily as pos­si­ble. We love to go on bike rides, take our dogs hik­ing, or jump on the tram­po­line. That’s the best way to stay fit and healthy - do things that don’t feel like work.” And Heidi - who is now in a re­la­tion­ship with art cu­ra­tor Vito Schn­abel says her big­gest mo­ti­va­tion is her fam­ily, as he wants to be “as healthy as pos­si­ble” for them. Speak­ing in the De­cem­ber is­sue of Shape mag­a­zine, the for­mer Victoria’s Se­cret an­gel said: “When­ever I need mo­ti­va­tion, I think of the big pic­ture. I re­mind my­self that I’m stay­ing ac­tive and eat­ing right to live a bet­ter and health­ier life. I want to be as healthy as pos­si­ble for my­self and my fam­ily.”
